A JERRABOMBERRA man was drink driving yesterday (March 12) when he overtook an unmarked police car on Tuggeranong Parkway.
The 44-year-old was driving a blue Ford Falcon ute at about 2.25pm, which police allege was going 150km/h.
The driver tested positive to a roadside breath test and was conveyed to City Police Station where he underwent further analysis, returning a result of 0.227, which is more than four times the legal limit for a full licence holder.
The man has been granted bail and will be summonsed to appear before the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date charged with level four drink-driving, aggravated dangerous driving and speeding.
"The Greens use the spurious argument that these further restrictions will help address problem gambling. I've got news for them, they won't. Problem gamblers bet on anything. They are free to bet online and do," writes BILL STEFANIAK.
